When I bought my rubicon it came with a five and a half inch rubicon express lift on it. I was woundering what all I'd have to replace if I wanted to lift it more? If anybody can help it would be appreciated

5 1/2" is pretty good, any taller and there's more of a chance to roll it, especially in off camber situations.

It's hard to know what would need replacing, depending on how much taller you want it.

In all honesty, if I were you I would either keep the 5.5" lift or lower to the 4.5" lift for low COG and then get some Hy-line tube fenders to fit bigger tires.

If it is a long arm, just coils. If it is a short arm then it may require goilg to long arm set-up.

how much bigger? you gotta think of axles and gears and stretching when you cross that line..

low cog, hi-lined fenders or tube fenders, and a crap ton of armor.. sounds better :)

Stock gear 4.10 . Jack up the back end and spin the wheels one time and see how many times the drive shaft turns. Where did you get it perhaps you can ask the previous owner what he did

How much do the hi-line kits run and how hard are they to install? I like the hight now but I haven't had it out crawling or anything yet so it might change after after I do that
